CYSC Tryout Information and Guidelines

CYSC Tryout Information and Guidelines

  
  • CYSC plans to hold two tryouts on two dates for each age division. Players must attend at least one of the tryout sessions, but are encouraged to attend both. We strongly encourage players to make every attempt to attend the first tryout in the event that the second tryout is cancelled due to weather.
  • Players should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the tryout in order to register.
  • Players should bring a correct sized soccer ball (pumped up, not flat) and a water bottle.
  • All tryout attendees must be registered with CYSC for the fall season.
  • CYSC reserves the right to form a select team by combining age groups based on registration numbers or talent levels at the particular age groups involved.
  • ALL PLAYERS MUST TRYOUT AT THEIR AGE GROUP.
  • For the fall season, coaches are allowed to add 2 coach picks
  • For the spring season, players may be added to the team based on coach and/or CYSC Board input without going through a new tryout process.
  • Tryout evaluators will consist of the head coach, other CYSC associates, and/or outside of the club agents.
  • Coaches will be able to observe the tryout registrants for their age groups, take notes, and provide scoring for their team.
  • Once teams are confirmed, there will be no adjustments to the teams without the approval of the Board.
  • Any changes without the Board approval will be handled accordingly and within the guidelines of the By-Laws.
  • All decisions of the tryout process are final.
  • Any changes to the guidelines can be done by approval of the Board at a Board meeting.
  • All decisions by the Board are final. Based on the good of the club, the Board may make adjustments to the guidelines.

Process for playing up an age group:
  • For a player to play up an age group, they must first be recommended by a CYSC coach.
  • Each player desiring to play up an age group must attend both tryout dates.
  • On the 1st tryout date, the player will tryout in their natural age group.
  • On the 2nd tryout date, the player will tryout against the older age group.
  • Final decision for all players playing up an age group is in the hands of the CYSC board and can be approved by a majority decision (minimum of 3 votes of 5).  All decisions about players playing up an age group will weigh both individual development and the best interest of the club and teams.
  • If board approves, board will also dictate which team is primary and, if applicable, secondary for the player playing up.  All decisions will weigh individual development and the best interest of the club and teams.
